Broad-based academic collaboration towards circular society

Published on
September 2, 2019

Utrecht University, Wageningen University & Research, Eindhoven University of Technology and the University Medical Center (UMC) Utrecht are planning to collaborate more closely.

The education and research conducted at the four institutions complement each other. The new partnership aims to contribute to solving today’s major issues by building bridges between the individual institutions and their knowledge and programmes.

The focus will be on young, highly talented academics and on those subject fields that are able to generate most impact, e.g. strengthening system transitions in the fields of energy, nutrition, health and the circular society. In addition to academic collaboration among the institutions, a wide range of external partners will be involved. The expertise to be combined will mainly be in the fields of artificial intelligence and molecular life sciences.

The four partners will be conducting these innovative projects in the coming four years. The partnership will be officially launched at an event to be held on 11 March 2020.
